Building the foundation : The story of tarot Part V – The Emperor

emperor

The Fool was given options by the Magus, and decided on one with help from the High Priestess. He learned how to develop it, thanks to the Empress. Now he must manage it. How to do this? He approaches a great Emperor seated on a stone throne. The Fool is amazed by the way the Emperor is instantly, eagerly obeyed in every particular, at how well his Empire is run. Respectfully, he asks the Emperor how it is he does this. And the Emperor answers: “Strong will and a solid foundation. It’s all very well,” he explains to the Fool, “to be dreamy, creative, instinctual, patient; but to control one must be alert, brave and aggressive.”

Ready now to lead rather than be led, the Fool heads out with new purpose and direction.

The Emperor literally represents the male creative energy. With that, it comes with ambition and pride. But it may also lead to arrogance and war. This means that the querent should be aggressive and brave. It also means that the Querent must take the leadership role and be proactive in the matters concerned.
